the bottle is placed in the rack, and the siphon inserted. A rubber tube leading from the distilled water tap is then connected to the lower end of the siphon and the bottle filled. The strong current of water entering a t the deepest part of the solution acts as sufficient stirrer to thoroughly mix the solution and secure uniform density. In this way a large number of bottles can be compactly stored and the solutions are easy of access. The framework structore allows the bottles to be cleaned

All dirt can be brushed down into the inclined lead-lined drip trough a t the base of the rack and flushed off. J. LORENZ SPORER. It may be recalled that in 1908 Julius Meyer' expressed the view that the hydrolysis of cane sugar by acids is accompanied by two simultaneous reactions, the mutarotation of glucose and fructose, and published experiments which seemed to show that the hydrolysis when observed * 2. physik.
